Revival

Our dying churches need revival just like a dying man in a hospital. Or, better still, resurrect our dead churches. Only the Spirit of God can do that. No amount of organizational change, polity, or whatever can resurrect a dead church except God Himself. We probably lost the Spirit and need to go back with contrite heart to repent from our worldly life. Gone are the days when ministers are willing to be poor so that their parishioners may be enriched. How many of us are willing to become destitute for the sake of kingdom building?
